The US Navy Mark 37 Director was used to control the fire of the 5”/38 caliber dual purpose batteries against both aircraft and surface targets, to direct the fire of starshells for the illumination of surface targets and to position the searchlights.  

This early "Square-back" Mk.37 director featured five observation hatches and three telescope port covers.   Many of these Mk.37 directors were modified to a later configuration (available separately) that had a shielded position for the director captain.

These directors were commonly installed on many classes of US Navy and US Coast Guard ships during World War II.   They carried Mk. 12/22 radars.  It is believed that these "Square-back" directors included various modifications known as Mods 8 through 13 and 17.
